    Travis for the record I think your Striper is right on! I never got a Jackhammer LOL! The question is did you get Rick to smile! He is a tough one to get to crack a smile when he is in the zone. Randy tyred killing him that doesn't count. You must have done good if you got him a picture with ya. Great striper.

    Hey Tax 101 , you just have to tell Rick a joke, or two, and he will crack up and smile , and while I was there, choke . LOL Travis ,I would bet Rick has already put that striper picture in his shop . He is proud of his students and their success. Rick , I`m working on some new fishing tactics for our next trip . I have to stay ahead of you in someway . LOL You probably have mastered the Southern dock fishing by now . LOL And by the way , I did not try to kill you . You were doing a good job of that, on your own . Mountain Ed ,will back me up, on that. Take care, all my friends and fellow fishheads .

    Here is a cool fish by 2006 Family member Mr. Travis Peterson! This week Travis was so kind as to share with us some of his recent work! Travis has made a mold and cast of a Small Jack Coho Salmon. To add artistic flair Travis also made a mold of his hand and created a cold cast to add a look of artist viewing pleasure! Super work Travis!

    My Best!

    Travis, that coho is the bomb. Love the presentation and the paint work. NICE!

    Here is a 16 inch eastern brook trout that I personally caught, molded, and painted. Just finished the paint today and will be building a base soon.

    Travis you are quite a motivated gentleman and have been busy since his workshop with the family in the snow and the mountains. I see the hard work hard and some good reference on one of the coolest of the Esox has paid off for you. Esox americanus vermiculatus also known as the Red Fin Grass Pickerel. This week Travis was so kind as to share with us some of his recent work! Travis used the cast of a Ron Reynolds of this 11" inch Redfin! Super work Travis!!!!

    Thanks for the kind words on the coho jack!!!
    WOW! Chad that brookie is so nice! Great job! They say we have some around here in SE Alaska, but I have yet to find one. There is still a open slot for a state record here. Cool looking fish!
    Jimmy, my friend, You amaze me everytime you post one of your awesome fish. Very sharp looking bass. I can not wait to see what you do with that Pink salmon!
    Travis, Nice work!! That looks like a very fun fish to work on! I have never seen one in person, only photos. Looks like you nailed it! Love the closed mouth!
    Nice work everyone! I always look forward to seeing work from "Fish Boot Camp" veterans!
